Obituary

Lerline Chay Brassfield was born to Raymond "Rocky" Brassfield and Lucy "Thelma" Grace Osbourne on February 13th, 1957 in Toledo, OH. She attended Pickett and Warren Elementary Schools and then McAuley High School for a couple years. Chay graduated from The Andrews School in Willoughby, Ohio before taking several classes at the University of Toledo.

Throughout her adult life, Chay loved watching sports from basketball, tennis, golf, and football to ice skating and gymnastics. In her younger years, she enjoyed. sewing, completing craft projects including crocheting, playing Atari and Colleco, and working on puzzles. Chay was probably one of the first "gamers" before the turn of the century. One of her first loves is music, the oldies but goodies. She also played the piano beautifully.

Chay remained a hard worker with an impeccable work ethic through retirement and beyond. She worked in case management at Lucas County Job and Family Services along with her mother from 18 years old until she retired at 48. She also enjoyed working with the Lucas County Board of Elections off and on alongside her brother for many years.

Chay often proclaimed that one of the best days of her life on October 31, 1980, the day she began caring for two of her younger sisters, Tori and Ashley. This selfless act saved them from an uncertain future. Through good times and bad, Chay continued to raise Tori and Ashley until adulthood. Her official End of Watch was the moment she died...though knowing her she is watching over all of sisters, family, and friends from heaven.

Chay liked to travel but didn't do it as often as she would have liked. She enjoyed visiting places like Vegas, Chicago, Alabama, Jamaica, and finally enjoyed her first cruise to the West Caribbean a couple months ago.

Last but not least, Chay would often let her hair grow long so she could have it cut and sent to Locks of Love. Her final of many donations was in January of this year.


While comforting one sister after the recent death of mother, Lucy Thelma (1/2020) and brother Nep (12/2018), Chay stated that dying is a blessing because she will see Momma, Nep, and her beloved dog Chelsey waiting at the Gates of Heaven. Lerline Chay Brassfield passed away unexpectedly on February 2nd, 2020. We pray that they are all reunited now.


Lerline Chay Brassfield was preceded in death by her father, Raymond "Rocky" Brassfield and mother Lucy Thelma Grace Osbourne, who just passed on January 15th of this year, and her only brother. Nep Brassfield.

She is survived by her younger sisters, Iva Brassfield, Tori (Rob) Nicholson, Joy Osbourne, and Ashley Adams; nieces and nephews Candace (Akil) Jones, Giavanna Smith, Anthony Holland Jr., Joshua Nicholson, Chetori Watson, Jordyn Goodner, Trinity Nicholson, and Stephen Adams II, along with three great nieces and two great nephews. Chay also leaves behind several close friends including Michelle, Kathy, LaVera and Ida.


Chay, you can rest now and experience the peace you absolutely deserve.

Chay you're my friend, my sister and a blessing. I thank you for your kindness and many words of encouragement.
For cruising with me and for acting crazy as we let our hair down, For telling me I'm always starting trouble when we both knew it was you, from laughing until our noses ran and tears flowed from our eyes. For sharing your secret place and opening up your heart and trusting me as your friend. I'll miss you telling me to get off your phone and then HANGING UP. I never thought you would hang up for a last time, but as Christ is in me and I continue to fight the good fight of faith, I know we'll meet again. Enjoy your Mom & Nep! You are already missed and will never be forgotten "You truly where a gift from GOD"
